Gene was a loving husband, father, and grandfather who loved nothing more than being at home surrounded by those he loved. He will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his wife Linda Louise English Byram of Franklin, GA.; three daughters, Judith Byram, Amy Duckett, and Debbie Frederick (Dennis) also of Franklin, GA.; one son, John Byram of Danielsville, GA.; one sister, Jerri Shumake of Carrollton, GA; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
